Episode Notes

Stress is a presence that we cannot deny in our lives. We will find some evidence of it every day. Professor Douglas Brooks says that it’s up to us to rise to the challenge of stress and in so doing, head it off before it turns into burnout. 

Stress, says Professor Brooks, is a natural and important feature of our human constitution. He recommends resources and practices that can help counteract it. Foremost among them is to simply breathe, and to make a commitment to our yoga practice. That engagement with ourselves and with yoga gives us empowerment.
